High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Yao Bin is a Chinese
figure skating coach. He is considered one of the pioneers of the
sport in China. Yao and his partner Luan Bo were the first team to
represent China at the World Figure Skating Championships. Since
then Yao has almost single-handedly turned China into a pair
skating world power. In the closed society of mid-20th century
China, Luan and Yao had only photographs from which to learn their
moves. They had a terrible experience at the 1980 World
Championships in Dortmund, West Germany; Yao has said he remembers
people in the audience laughing at their inferior skating (among
those people was Irina Rodnina, who later recalled the skating was
indeed very funny). They finished 15th, in last place. They
competed at the World Championships twice more in 1981 and 1982,
finishing last both times. They also placed 15th at the 1984 Winter
Olympics. After these embarrassing experiences, Yao was determined
to create a team of world-class figure skaters.
